Harbor Jazz Cruises | Gray Line New Orleans

Harbor Cruise

The Harbor Jazz Cruise departs from the French Quarter and takes you on a voyage back to a time when riverboats reigned as king of the river and as the major source of transportation. Life along the river was slow and easy.  From the decks of the Riverboat CITY of NEW ORLEANS, you’ll see up close and personal one of the world’s busiest ports. Enjoy the steam calliope, live narration and the live local music of the Steamboat Stompers.

Covid-19 Note: All persons 12 years and older must show proof of vaccination, PCR or antigen test for entry to indoor facilities.
